Hi Everyone!  Kerrie here with a fun layout I created using Couture Creations Card Deco Essentials Dye Ink Pads and their latest collection Sunburnt Country.

Last month I was so fortunate to be a volunteer at the Inas Global Games held here in Brissie and I knew this this photo of me with Lori the mascot for the games would be perfect for the Lorikeet patterned paper.

To create my background I smooched the ink pad colours onto the plastic packaging that cardstock comes in and then spritzed it with water. Then lay my base cardstock on top and press down.

I wanted a imperfect look so I didn’t over press.

I coloured my die cut leaves again using an ink pad smooshed onto plastic packaging and then dipped the leaves in.

Set leaves and background aside to dry or dry off with your heat tool.

I fussy cut the Lorikeets from the patterned paper to layer onto my layout.

Lastly flicked on some splatters using white gesso watered down with water and a splatter brush.


Happy Creating 

Kerrie Gurney
